Chart-topping artist, songwriter, and producer Kirk Franklin (Fo Yo Soul/RCA) celebrated a winning night at the 2024 GRAMMY® Awards, as his #1 hit song “All Things” won the GRAMMY Award for Best Gospel Performance/Song. During the GRAMMYs Premiere Ceremony, Franklin also delivered a potent live performance with a high-octane medley of his hits “All Things,” “Melodies from Heaven,” and “I Smile.”

Composed by Kirk Franklin, “All Things” marks his 20th GRAMMY Award win of his career, making him the most decorated GRAMMY-winner in gospel for his works as an artist, songwriter, and producer, both for his own songs and collaborations with others. It’s his fourth consecutive GRAMMY Award after winning three at the 2023 GRAMMYs, for the Maverick City Music & Kirk Franklin joint live album, Kingdom Book One Deluxe (Tribl Records/Fo Yo Soul/RCA Inspiration) and two of its songs. “All Things” is featured from Franklin’s latest solo album Father’s Day, which was released on October 6, 2023. The musical trailblazer garnered new milestones with this 10-track studio album.

Father’s Day marked his 14th #1 album on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart, setting a record as the artist with the most #1 albums on that chart. The single “All Things” also set a #1 record on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart as his 10th #1 hit, tying as an artist with Tamela Mann for most #1 songs on that chart.

Kirk Franklin is performing on The Super Bowl Soulful Celebration 25th Anniversary, which will air on Saturday, February 10th at 8 pm ET/PT on CBS and stream on Paramount+. Taping on Wednesday, February 7th in Las Vegas, live from the Pearl Concert Theater at the Palms Casino Resort, the special will be hosted by Cedric The Entertainer and Tichina Arnold, and feature additional performances by Earth, Wind & Fire, Mary Mary, Robin Thicke, and The Players Choir, an all-player ensemble of NFL talent, and celebrate various honorees for their inspiring service and achievements.
